Our Baby Girl is Hurt

Our 4th of July started off well considering that we have been testing the Labs out of their crates for the night and were woken up by both girls at 3am because they were bored and wanted to play. We got up for a little potty break, decided to kennel the girls up and headed back to bed. At 6:00am, Cheyenne could take no more and make such a loud noise to let us know that our sleeping in was not an option.

With so much energy and fireworks tonight, what were we to do? Easy - head to the dog park for some early morning fun. Our usual hour spent there was cut short by about 40 minutes when Cheyenne came limping out of the muddy river bed. Our baby girl was hurt. We should have known better since she had been limping on an off for about a week now. Of course, we thought she was all better but it was evident from her limp that her right paw/wrist/leg was bothering her once again.

She is hobbling but not crying, holding it in the air, or even really paying attention to the pain she must be in. It seems like she is more uncomfortable then anything else at this point. So, we headed back home early and gave her some special cheese (American cheese with a couple of aspirin hidden in it) immediately. With the exception of getting up every now and then (hobbling), she is resting comfortably at my feet. The stairs have been blocked off and no rough play for this puppy! Doggie daycare tomorrow will have strict instructions to keep her from playing too hard and if it isn't any better within the next few days, we will have to pay a visit to our furry doctor (the vet). We pray it is nothing more than a soft tissue strain.
